    Wanting to get the silencer deleted for a little more bark from my 2016 c43 amg can anyone recommend somebody who is trusted...

    Been to a local exhaust specialist (powerflow), they looked at the car and said ''we don't have that kind of wide 4" pipe and its also oval shape'' there gonna look into it but im not filled with confidence...maybe a bit much for them...

    any suggestions appreciated...thanks

    AMG performance exhaust in Sports+ mode is surely enough?

    car doesnt have performance exhaust (long story) but i got a substantial discount for it pretty happy with sound but i'm curious on the effect id like to re create as best as possible the perf exhaust sound when in performance mode... found a shop nearby who advised id be better taking off just the rear mufflers and leaving the rest as is....partly to get the volume increase and deeper sound and partly because he felt that removing resonators may end up damaging the rear mufflers

    seemed pricey £320 for rear muffler delete and straight pipe welded, thoughts?

    Seems expensive to me; a new 2.5" stainless system from the turbo elbow back for the Nissan cost me £400. - Surely that's more work than removing a muffler.

    generally speaking i dont want to go too mad just a little boost without making it drone.... what tends to be better rear muffler delete or resonator delete what effect does each have?.... seems to me just to remove resonator isnt that easy on this car due to the large pipe diameter, multiple bends and odd shape it looks tricky.

    Removing and replacing the resonator is easy for fabricators like Torqueflow. They will just cut it out and put in a x pipe if you have a twin pipe system or replace with a straight pipe.

    If I understand you correctly, the rear muffler is the back box with the chrome tip?
    Don't touch that unless you want a boomy noise with drone.

    Speak to Imran at Torqueflow, tell him what kind of sound you are looking for and he will advise the best method of achieving it. He has been doing these mods for years.

    ok so your saying resonator delete only, sorry bit of a noob to this the resonator is the box that is before the rear mufflers at the tail pipe?

    getting so much conflicting advice about what to remove to achieve what i want :(

    seen underneath there is one box at manifold one box after that and then the twin boxes at each exhaust tip.

    the guys at powerflow put me off the resonator due to the difficulty of it (according to them) i will speak to torqueflow

    No after market options yet? Might be worth contacting a few companies to see if they would like to develop one using your car?

    I'd hate to have a custom exhaust fabricator making something for a car that new.

    Awe are working on one seems nice but very pricey and not worth that much to me don't mind a couple of hundred for a simple and reversible mod but no more if I can remove the rear mufflers and achieve an improvement that's great but that's as far as I want to go

    little bit more researching and have stumbled across a place called profusion which is round the corner from me they look very professional, and have advised me to put in an electric exhaust cutout in so I won't need to remove components permanently have the ability to make it quiet when i want it and can easily be removed if required with a blanking plate.

    this sounds like my best option its not that cheap but it appears to tick all the boxes.

    heres the website Electric Exhaust Cutout - COMPONENTS

    unless someone tells me otherwise on here ill give this a go and post before and after vids for anyone else in the future.

    So the electric exhaust valve has been fitted looks great high quality and very discreet ....

    The sound..... O....M.....G it's a variable adjustment can go from stock to .....insane the sound is gorgeous and that's coming from someone very fussy it's not ear piercing or ricerish in anyway its changed it...totally different car it sounds like an animal .... I will make some proper vids...cant recommend it enough ...

    P.s.seems power has improved a little...as if it needed it lol

    Any videos/clips? Also, could you say how much £ this cost to do? I am looking for pretty much the same thing and have contacted Profusion myself but wanted to check with you whether you were still happy and what exactly was done on your car and how much it cost (i.e. is it a lot less than fitting an AWE exhaust?).

    Thanks for your response
